A Successful Kick-Start from Kickstarter

Our Kickstarter campaign was launched on April 12, 2016 on the eve of our reality show debut, Quit Your Day Job, featured on the Oxygen television channel. Our campaign ran for forty-five days with the purpose of generating funds to build on what we currently had. This included developing shoes in larger men's and women's sizes, smaller in kid's sizes, and half sizes and width options all around. When the campaign closed on May 27, 2016, 217 backers successfully brought our campaign to life by raising $32,763. There are so many people to thank that contributed to the success—from all those that spread the word through the social media channels; to those that interviewed us and put us in newspaper and magazine articles; to those that created video footage to go on YouTube or television, to those that were simply there for moral support... It was a huge team effort and there is no way we could have exceeded our $30,000 goal without each of you. And with that said, there is a special group of people we would like to give particular recognition. This group of 40 each gave very generously to our Kickstarter campaign, thus are displayed below as our Founders.
